      Hi Rachel,

      If you open up the PowerPoint and then play the slideshow the links in the PowerPoint should take you directly to each of the resources mentioned. However, here is the link to the story map – https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource/story-map/.

      Let me know if you have any further questions, always happy yo help.

      Kind regards,
